The Use Of Asbestos In Heating, Ventilation, And Air Conditioning (HVAC) Systems

In the early half of the 20th century, asbestos was heavily used in a variety of building materials. From sealants to ceiling materials, this fibrous silicate substance was used widely in residential, commercial, and public settings. Before the 1980s, asbestos containing material (ACM) was also used in HVAC systems. It was commonly used as insulation for heating ducts. It was also installed in duct dampeners and insulation materials around ductwork.

Asbestos insulation can be safe when contained. However, if asbestos fibers make their way into your air ducts, they can cause significant health problems. If your HVAC materials are getting old and fragile, exposure to asbestos is more likely to occur. Along with decay from old age, damage can occur during renovation projects, which often entail air duct removal or HVAC system upgrades.

Damage can even occur during air duct cleaning procedures, with dangerous fibers possibly entering your air conditioning system. If you want to manage or remove your air duct infrastructure, it’s important to find a professional asbestos abatement contractor.

What Is Asbestos in HVAC?

Asbestos is a natural mineral substance found all over the world in rock deposits. While it looks much like a regular rock, the six forms of asbestos are made from different types of fibrous crystals. Asbestos material is extremely thin and flexible. It’s great for insulation, and it’s also highly resistant to heat, corrosion, and electricity.

In the early part of the 20th century, these qualities made asbestos an incredibly popular building material. In fact, the use of asbestos in construction stretches back much further. Stone Age people using it to make ceramic pots and ancient Greeks using it for tablecloths and napkins.

Why Is Asbestos in HVAC Systems So Dangerous?

Asbestos is a hazardous material found in a range of building materials. While natural, this fibrous silicate substance is known to cause or increase the risk of numerous serious diseases. Exposure to asbestos has been linked to asbestosis, mesothelioma, and lung cancer.

This dangerous material is also known to increase the risk of colon cancer and other digestive cancers, so it’s critical to be careful. An asbestos inspection is required to measure building materials, with air sampling also recommended to check breathable air quality.

If your home or business contains asbestos materials, professional abatement or removal is often required. Asbestos can be found in a wide array of building materials. These include flame retardant, ceiling panels, shingles and siding, vinyl flooring, popcorn ceiling insulation, water and sewer pipes, and HVAC air ducts. Without proper treatment or removal, these asbestos materials can lead to dangerous exposure.

Asbestos fibers pose a serious health risk when they become airborne. This is why they need to be removed and disposed of effectively. If you discover asbestos insulation or materials anywhere in your HVAC system, you should contact a professional to handle the abatement ASAP. Asbestos exposure should be avoided at all times.

How To Know When Your HVAC System Has Asbestos

As a rule, it’s important to leave all asbestos related detection and removal work to the experts. They have access to proper testing devices, correct safety equipment, and advanced HEPA vacuum systems to remove small particles. If you notice white paper-like substances wrapped around your air ducts, there’s likely to be asbestos in your insulation.

Generally, if the ducts in your home were installed prior to the 1980s, they probably have asbestos. Asbestos is incredibly common in older homes.

Regardless of the materials you have, we can remove them safely with minimum disruption to your HVAC system, your building, and your way of life. Our specially trained team deals with the removal of asbestos every day. You can be assured of a professional work ethic and strict attention to detail.

I highly recommend ES-America's services. Knowing very little about asbestos, I researched widely and called many companies. Sarah and Elias by far surpassed their competition. For me, ES out-shined others with their commitment and excitement about their chosen expertise (all about asbestos). On our first call, Sarah answered my questions quickly and thoroughly, which prompted deeper questions that I had not asked other companies (because the reps seemed lacking in knowledge or interest). With other companies, I felt the need to continue searching. With Sarah, I hired ES after the first call. Elias came the next day and was just as enthusiastic and competent. He worked quickly and then expertly taped over and cleaned up the test areas. The test results arrived within hours - and thankfully were all negative. Last note: their pricing seems competitive.

Sara in the office was polite and punctual. Elias came out almost immediately and collected samples. Within four hours I had my results. This company is a model how all companies should work

I was contacted promptly after inquiry, Eli was great in explaining where specifically the asbestos was found in my older mobile home, and how it was to be removed before the structure could be demolished. Job was done great and within the timeframe they stated in the estimate. Would definitely recommend.
